    That is truly adorable. I have a hand painted birdhouse that is of a similar style and I treasure it :-)

    Mary, Now I not only need a potting shed, but I need a little painted jar too! It’s so cute and Jenna captured all the elements that make your shed so special. Those tiny bees on the lid are the perfect finishing touch! Linda

    Love this! The painted jar is adorable. I so love your potting shed!

    Oh my word! That jar is just the cutest thing and perfect for you! What a unique treasure! It’s been a week or so since I’ve visited, and I just wanted to say that I like your new, wider theme!

    Picture me blushing Mary, I never dreamed you would post about my little jar~ I am so embarrassed, but also thrilled that you like it so much! I love it full of birdseed, just as I had pictured it in my mind, but I didn’t picture the daisies blooming out of it, so adorable! It was hard to recreate your over the top adorable potting shed and do it justice…plus I would need a much BIGGER jar to be able to incorporate all the wonderful touches you magically create throughout the four seasons~ thank you so much for all the blog love and shout outs, so appreciated, but so not necessary as you are always such a constant inspiration to me and your creative posts ALWAYS make my day! Thank you so much sweet Mary~

    Adorable jar featuring your potting shed by Jenna. She has a myriad of talents and generous to share with you. Your post was a reflection of both your talents.

    How sweet of Jenna to send the jar!!! I may have to commission her to do one for me. What a great talent she has. The best part of this post is seeing your amazing, gorgeous potting shed. I just swoon over it whenever you share it. Decorated for Fall is simply gorgeous.

    Just went back to look again and have a question. I noticed in the Fall picture that some pumpkins are raised on what looks like metal coasters with legs. Where did you get them?? A tiny detail but I love them.

      Hi Pinky, They’re trivets from Tag, I them use under pots. I’ve had them about 15 years from my retail days :)

  18. August 7, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    DARLING! And I love your potting shed too! I can’t wait until I have one built on our new property. This move/remodel has just about kicked my booty so I am ready to wait on new projects. But, this is definitely on the list. Hope you are loving your summer!

    Jenna, what a thoughtful gift for Mary. I heard her screaming with joy when she opened it all the way to Maryland! That is definately unique and a conversation piece and you can bet your sweet boots, she will tell everybody about her blogging friend Jenna and show it off. That Mary is a special and talented lady herself. Now I’m moving on to look at Jenna’s blog or website!
